UPDATE: The Clark-Pleasant Community School Corporation released an update Wednesday afternoon.  They said “crews were able to make great progress” in addressing the water damage, which affected 4-5 classrooms.  So, Whiteland Elementary School will be open for classes Thursday.

WHITELAND, Ind. — The first day of school for students at Whiteland Elementary School was supposed to be Wednesday, but there is water damage, so the school is closed.

“Overnight rain, along with ongoing roof repair, has led to water damage in several classrooms at Whiteland Elementary. Therefore, classes are canceled for the day,” said Rick Hightower, communications director for Clark-Pleasant School Corporation.

All other Clark-Pleasant Schools were able to open as planned for the start of the 2023-24 academic year.

They hope to have the school opened on Thursday.
